1. nLite allows you to customize your installation of Windows XP, Windows 2000, or Windows 2003. You can integrate service packs and hotfixes from Microsoft directly into your windows distribution files without having to re-download and install them every time you need to re-install windows.

2. There is also the option to remove unwanted components from within windows. Many applications are automatically included every time windows is installed. Not every person needs or even wants all of these applications which Microsoft considers to be necessary. By removing these unwanted components you can free up space within your setup and ultimately save space on your hard drive after installation.

3. nLite also provides a way to customize your installation by allowing numerous tweaks to the way windows looks and operates after it has been installed. You can even bypass Microsoft’s bulky unattended setup instructions and do it the easy way. The nLite way!

4. The descriptions and pictures in this guide are in reference to version 1.0 RC5.

  • You must be running any 32 or 64 bit version of Windows. Windows 9x not supported.
  • nLite needs .NET Framework 2.0 to be installed. If it is not you will be asked to do so uppon installer startup
  • Alternatively you can download nuhi’s Alternative Runtimes for nLite. These can be found on the Download page, however few people reported issues with it so if you get error popup on nLite startup then use full framework.
  • Also, you need to have your Windows installation CD for the original Windows installation files
